Judge No More


Outside of time, Locke did travel, through rockface, iron gates, and over gravel. She found Ynayna trapped in time by the entrance to the P’Toran mine.

With the Paniom lifted just a notch, Locke allowed Ynayna movement to watch as one by one she brought into view the firstborn captives who have since grew.

Caldane, the valet, the GodSon, last to appear, smiled at his mother, whispering, “You are here.” “In time, my son”, Locke replied, as she glared at Ynayna with nowhere to hide.

“When the Paniom lifts, I command of thee away into exile for you to flee… take Skaglad your lacky and begone and you may no longer judge over anyone.”

This week’s prompt word is ‘Valet’, and I’ve gone for an obscure interpretation of the word from the middle ages, where it is associated with royal households… although in Everplain it is also linked to the families of the gods.

That’s the beauty of mythology. Things can suddenly take on a different meaning!

Epic Mythology continues next time, and previous parts are contained within my Storylines menu.

    “Things can suddenly take on a different meaning!”
    I know what you mean!
    Caldane, the valet, I hope he wasn’t mean.

      Caldane was lean, Ladysighs, not mean at all! 😃 It’s rather handy when you can change the meaning of a word, not that it can be done in every instance! 😊

        Understood.
        My mother (bless her soul) had this peculiar little quirky thing she said after almost every sentence.
        “You know what I mean is.” But of course we didn’t ever know what she meant.

        People today put a lot of “You know’s” in the conversation. I try not to.

          I used to say ‘like’ quite a lot, years and years ago, but I managed to wean myself off it, you kno… 😊 I won’t go there! 😆

      Perhaps, Nick… but hopefully not Ynayna or Skaglad! 😳

    Who knows what will happen when the Panion lifts the next time.

      With the Paniom, when it’s lifted, time merely starts its flow again, it’s like the pause being taken off… that said, with all the emerging firstborns, things may not quite be as before…
      Thanks for the question, Frank! 🙂

    The rhyming worked well with this epic tale.

      Thanks, D. The formatting of the post is a little tricky (writing on a mobilius phoneus), but the rhyming manages to get in there! 😃
